Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a historical past extending back to the Roman era, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there existed settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coinage picked up in the area give evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered denote that they were inhabiting the region very likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was isn't reported until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a way bigger area than only the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not included till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
